    Canon EOS 80D updates Dual Pixel AF, bumps resolution with 24MP sensor

    Newly enthused: hands on with the Canon EOS 80D

    A new middle of the range crop sensor from Canon! Making a lot of noise about their new AF system, various improvements in other areas, a 24mp sensor, new AF engines in the kit lens with an optional motorized external video AF system. Built in GPS is also now included.

    Not as much noise on the sensor though - (yeah fantastic pun ;)) and might be a bit before we hear about its performance ,but being middle ranged its unlikely to be vastly different to the 7DMII

    It'll be my next camera body if high ISO is comparable to the 7D markII.
    If not, I'll have to save up for the 7.

    Considering the resolution went up, I'm not expecting the ISO to be great. :(

    Camera specs getting better all the time, that looks great if you don't need the 7dii. I'm sure the sensor is likely the same as the 760d models

    Higher ISO is my no.1 priority, everything else these bring (750,760,70,7d) along with that is great, I could use
    more FPS of course then my T2i, but if the 80D shares the sensor with the 750-760D (which mpix count suggests)
    it'll be worse in high-ISO then the 70D.

    These are small differences but still.. compare to the T2i, T6i/s (750-760) seem to go about 1/3 stop better clean.
    70D is another third.
    7D markII is another third.

    I really need as much as I can get without going FF.

    I feel like both sides are just taking incremental baby steps in each "new" model.

    Part of me wonders how many of these "new" models use the same hardware with only minor software improvements. Its amazing to see what Magic Lantern can do to unlock the full potential of a camera by removing all the marketing limits put in by the manufacturers.

    I already have this one. It may be called the 760d/T6s?

    The new compacts they announced are more intriguing to me. Along with new lens technology, which sounds great on paper!

    Does Magic Lantern benefit still shooters?

    Specs seem like a year or two behind the curve...

    Speaking of same, or mostly same hardware.. they've been doing this for years.
    The T2i (550D) when it came out was a rather nice improvement over the T1i/500D.
    This was 4-5 years ago and they were stuck at that level up until recently (750/760 and 70/7dm2).

    All the Rebel bodies since between T2i and T6i used the same sensor and had the exact same image quality
    while Nikon was pushing up. The D3200 already owns them all, the D3300 was even better then that.

    And then they put out the 70D with it's focusing issues and basically a 1/3 of improvement in high iso over the
    18mpix bodies.. while Nikon was WAY over 1 stop better. :(

    I really wish they'd wake up.
    I've been suggesting Nikons to people for years now, and regreting buying the T2i in the first place.

    I would have been happy with the D7200 now which is a lot cheaper then the 7D markII..

    It seems odd - Canon seems to be ruling in most areas barring the sensor ISO noise performance; whilst Nikon and the others are ruling there mostly because they are buying sony sensors because Sony threw stupid money at developing them so they could break into the market itself.

    Honestly if Canon were to buy just 1 Sony sensor into their system they'd likely make a huge killing in the market. But for some reason they want to stick inhouse which is great; but it seems that they can't just can't crack the sensor tech (or they have but can't crack it without infringing on copyright of the sony design).

    In general anything that isn't top line is incremental. Even then each model to model is generally incremental - you have to skip a generation to see a bigger gain in specifications.
